More states offer tuition reimbursement for primary care

Article

Several states have recently launched medical school loan reimbursement programs for primary care physicians, and more may be on the way.

Several states have recently launched medical school loan reimbursement programs for primary care physicians, and more may be on the way.

The Texas Department of State Health Services began accepting applications in March for a program that awards pediatricians $140,000 in debt repayment over four years if they agree to accept Medicaid patients.

Also in March, the commonwealth of Massachusetts and Bank of America announced a program to award up to $75,000 over three years to graduates who agree to work in primary care in community health centers. In Indiana, a state Senate committee agreed to forgive $5,000 a year of debt for new doctors who choose primary care in the state, and Maryland has a debt-forgiveness program currently in discussion.
